"To achieve greatness, you must surround yourself with great people,'' Head Coach John Galloway said.”We are excited to welcome the most prominent player to ever grace our game to the Jacksonville University family. Casey Powell will join our staff as the offensive coordinator, and more importantly, an ambassador to the sport of lacrosse. Together, I believe we can establish Jacksonville University as a mainstay in the national lacrosse landscape.''
In addition to his stellar career, Powell has ventured into the business world.

He has an acclaimed video game, Casey Powell Lacrosse 16, released in January of 2016 for play on various home entertainment systems.
